Miracle escape for boy who falls from 9th floor
ThinkSpain , Wednesday, May 23, 2012

A four-year-old boy has escaped practically unharmed after falling from a 9th floor flat in the district of La Coruña de Fuenlabrada in Madrid after the branches of a tree broke his fall and probably saved his life.

Relatives explained how they think the little lad, who was at home with his family, clambered out onto the terrace to try to reach something and then fell into the tree below at around 3.30pm yesterday.

Several witnesses have confirmed that the branches of the tree broke the child's fall, and the emergency services have reported that the child "appears" to have escaped with nothing but a slight head injury after his dramatic fall.

A neighbour said he heard a Nigerian woman shouting and then saw the woman's child lying in the garden adjacent to the block of flats.

The child was conscious, but "with a glazed look in his eyes" and was crying and complaining of a pain in his side, so the neighbour called 112.

Sandra, a friend of the little boy's parents, said it was "a miracle" he had escaped almost unhurt.
